    i could teach you :P .. and i would love to have a perfect english, but i think im far away from having this beautiful british accent that i dream of.
    I've tried to learn Arabic but it was too hard, I know very little. I could probably have a very simple conversation with somebody in Arabic but that's about it.

    I'd love to be able to speak Swedish, or any Scandinavian language for that matter, I've always been interested in visiting and perhaps even living in that part of the world. It seems like a really interesting place.

    Chinese would also be useful for when the takeover inevitably happens.

    German.

    I love Spanish and French, and they're undoubtedly a lot more useful in virtually every context, but German sounds pretty awesome in full flow!
    Every language is useful: no language has superiority over another.

    I would like to be fluently in my own language Edo lol.

    Since my bf and his family are so it would make meals at their house easier when they end up switching languages.

    Creole
    Creole isn't a language. Creole (like Pidgin) is a descriptive term for a new language which arises when two languages meet (normally in a settler/conquesty environment)


    I'd like to be fluent in Anglo Saxon, because it's really interesting and it would make my uni exams a whole lot easier :ahee:

    French. Because, technically, I'm already supposed to be fluent and, apart from being sick of getting things wrong, it would be really nice to be able to go to France next year and speak to les gens, 'comme une francaise'.

    You're right, I didn't even mean Creole. I'll edit the original now.

    there are so many ppl who would love to talk Arabic, thats surprising! well, when your english is perfect you need to go find another language ... and yess there are some of the letters that are hard to pronounce ! (im glad im lebanese, for the first time). Try again , and trust me its great to talk in different languages!

    German primarily. Secondarily - any Nordic/Northern languages etc i.e. Dutch, Swedish, Finnish etc.

    I plan to learn most of these languages (German and Finnish especially) before I leave for "the other side". )

    Not sure what computer/laptop you've got, but if you've got a macbook alt (well not alt, but the alt button) +c = ç :ahee:

    Plus alt + e + vowel of your choice =á é í ó ú
    alt + ^ + voyc = ô etc.
    alt + ` + voyc = à etc.

    In b4 language man :teehee:

    I'd like to be fluent in Irish and French eventually, and be able to read and write in Latin, Greek and Hebrew.

    I have fantasies about learning Russian and German, and really should learn Spanish for family reasons but finding the time for it is a challenge
